John 1:14-18, NLT

14So the Word became human*1:14a Greek became flesh. and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness.*1:14b Or grace and truth; also in 1:17. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son.

15John testified about him when he shouted to the crowds, “This is the one I was talking about when I said, ‘Someone is coming after me who is far greater than I am, for he existed long before me.’”

16From his abundance we have all received one gracious blessing after another.*1:16 Or received the grace of Christ rather than the grace of the law; Greek reads received grace upon grace. 17For the law was given through Moses, but God’s unfailing love and faithfulness came through Jesus Christ. 18No one has ever seen God. But the unique One, who is himself God,*1:18 Some manuscripts read But the one and only Son. is near to the Father’s heart. He has revealed God to us.
